Slab Leaks When You Need a Plumber, It'd Better Be a Good One!

San Diego Slab Leak Detection & Repairs

Qualified Service from Trustworthy San Diego Plumbers

The concrete slab that serves as your home’s foundation is more than just a solid block on the land your home is built on; it also has wires and pipes running through it, including water and sewer main lines and much more. However, the pipes built into your slab could start to leak, creating a serious threat to your home.

Slab leaks can cause immense damage by eroding or eating away at the foundation your home is built on, which could cause slipping, sinking, and even potentially devastating foundation problems that could jeopardize your entire home. When this happens reach out to us for slab leak repair and detection services in San Diego.

When you think you have a slab leak, you need to seek help from a professional quickly, and you shouldn’t hesitate to reach out to a San Diego plumbing specialist as soon as possible at (858) 375-5633.

What Causes A Slab Leak?

Foundation shifting, wear and tear on your plumbing, pipe corrosion, or even high water pressure can all contribute to the plumbing in your slab eventually cracking and developing a leak. However, how do you know any of these things have occurred without inspecting your plumbing for itself?

How Can You Tell If You Have a Slab Leak?

  • Cracks in your walls or flooring
  • Mildew or moisture under your flooring
  • An increase in bugs in your home
  • Higher water bills each month
  • A drop in your home's water pressure
  • Spinning water meter when no water is running in your home
  • Sewer-like smells (if the leak is in your sewer lines)

    If you suspect you have a slab leak, our Clairemont residential plumbing team can confirm this for you with testing methods that are proven, reliable, and accurate. Once we confirm that you have a slab leak, we can work with you to repair it, stop the damage to your foundation, and keep your home in good condition.

    Repairing a Slab Leak

    How do you fix a leaky pipe in your slab? Our team of skilled San Diego plumbers has a few different options available to them.

    Pipe Re-Routing

    For smaller issues in pipes that can’t be fixed with re-lining, sometimes you can simply work around the problem by routing the waterline away from the damaged pipe with a few feet exposed above ground. However, this is usually the best option only when needing to replace a few feet.


    This involves completely digging up the old line and putting a new one in. While this will put a stop to the leaks, it is intrusive and requires significant cutting into your floors and concrete slab to fix it. Usually, this is a last-ditch effort or reserved for only the most serious issues.
